3daystartup

July 8th - 10th, 2017

Austin, Texas, Austin

History:
Founded by a diverse group of students that saw unexpressed potential for startups in higher education, the 3 Day Startup program debuted at the University of Texas at Austin in 2008.
 
The student organization incorporated as a nonprofit in 2010 and began expanding this immersive, short-format model to higher learning institutions across the globe. While early programs focused on strictly technology- and web-enabled startups, the organization has designed and delivered programs across a range of outcomes (economic development, skill-building, accelerator/competition readiness) and themes (social innovation, energy, culinary, hardware.)
 
Mission
Activate entrepreneurial potential in students of all kinds through experiential education and a global entrepreneurship ecosystem.
 
Vision
All students ignite their potential through the experience of entrepreneurship.
 
 
3 Day Startup (3DS) is a 501(c)(3) international nonprofit that helps students start companies in an extreme hands-on environment. Over the past 6 years, we have helped build entrepreneurial capabilities in more than 8,700 students around the worl1d, which has resulted in 90 companies, 34 accelerator acceptances, and 3DS alumni have raised $85 million.
 
For the second year in a row, we’re bringing this powerful group together at Capital Factory in Austin for 3 days to network and learn how to take their startups to the next level. The Global Roundup will host 200+ thinkers, dreamers, builders and doers representing an influential demographic of future and present entrepreneurs and CEOs.
